Frankie Capan III has tied the lowest under-par round in Korn Ferry Tour history.

Capan, a Minnesota tour pro and who played at Florida Gulf Coast University, turned in a 13-under 58 at the Veritex Bank Championship in Texas, breaking Scottie Scheffler’s course record.

Capan was four-under through his first eight holes at Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington before making an eagle at the par-5 ninth. He proceeded to roll off seven consecutive birdies on the back nine, finishing with back-to-back pars on his final two holes for a 29-29 finish.

Interestingly, it wasn’t even the lowest score on the Korn Ferry Tour this year. In February there were two sub-60 scores at the Astara Golf Championship thanks to Cristobal Del Solar (57) and 19-year-old Aldrich Potgieter (59). Those scores came with asterisks of sorts, as the course was a par 70 and playing at just 6,254 yards (5,718 metres), a distance extremely short by pro standards made even shorter by the course’s elevation of 8,600 feet (2,600 metres) above sea level. For context, the Texas Rangers layout is a par-71 layout measured at 7,010 yards (6,410 metres).

There have been just six other 58s recorded on world-ranked professional golf tours, including one on the Korn Ferry circuit (Stephan Jaeger at the 2016 Ellie Mae Classic). This group does not include Bryson DeChambeau’s 58 at a LIV Golf event in West Virginia last year, as the Saudi league does not qualify for Official World Golf Ranking points. Jim Furyk has the PGA Tour record with a 58 at the 2016 Travelers Championship.

Capan, 24, is in his second year on the Korn Ferry Tour. He entered the week ranked 30th on the season-long points list, with the top 30 earning PGA Tour cards for the next season.
